1. I will never post any information more personal than my Thinker name nor will I post pictures of myself or others (family, students or staff in my school or enrichment program).

2. I will respect the public nature of online information, and in doing so, I will respect the wishes of my fellow students for keeping their information (full name, compromising stories, etc.) private.
